Rural Water Supply Training

By Mechanicsville Volunteers
August 17, 2020

On Monday, August 17, 2020, the Mechanicsville Firefighters went to one of our normal drafting sites to practice Rural Water Supply Operations. Our Operators put their skills to test by obtaining a draft from a single intake without using the primer. Once all Operators performed this task, drill shifted by maximizing Engine 23's 1250 GPM pump. Operators utilized 3 intakes, and obtained a rate of 2600 GPM. Drafting is very vital to our department due to the minimum amount of hydrants in the area.
